First Look at Punggol Waterway Point

Today the door of Waterway Point at Punggol opens for the public at 10am and since we are so nearby, we thought we should go try our luck at redeeming some of the freebies that were given out to early birds. We arrived at exactly 10.10am and alas! The queue for free SHAW movie tickets were at least 100-meter long and the queue at the information counter on Level 2 was like a long snake going round and round the huge mall’s corridor! They had to deploy more than 3 security guards just to ensure the queue is in order.

Guess I am not kiasu enough to get there earlier nor to join the long queues.

At least I managed to snap some photos of the mall while zooming through the crazy early bird crowd at this first mega mall in Punggol! Overall I must say, I’m very happy with what I see. Very spacious corridor, huge atriums indoor and outdoor, essential stores we frequent often are there and there’s lots of food options (and quite a lot of Halal ones too) at Waterway Point.

If you’re planning to head down soon, go before the afternoon “after-school” crowd cos that’s where the place get super crowded. Best is between 10am to 1pm on weekdays for this interim opening period.

Here’s some photos to bring you through the mall.

Entrance to Waterway Point from Punggol MRT Station
Level 1 where you can enter to the West or East wing or go straight down to Basement 1 via the escalator straight up.
The crazy queue for free movie tickets, happening tomorrow and Wednesday too! First few in line started queuing around 7am (based on Instagram posting I found). OMG! 7am!
Nice Allscript store at Basement, get your indie reading fixes here.
Of cos I had to check out the toilets! Sadly all the baby/family rooms are not available today yet. So no photos for now.
24hour FairPrice Finest at Basement 2
Just across Breadtalk, I spy this small but awesome Halal bread selection by Swee Heng.

Other food options for all Muslim family and friends…

Serving fishball noodles, wanton noodles and I also spotted some curry rice option inside! Queue was too long so I’ll check them out another day.
Lots of outdoor alfresco dining options available, these were not in operation yet today.
Ever since we tried Creating our own burgers at McDonald’s, we’ve been wanting more. And now right next door to McD is Burger Up! More burger customising for us to try, there goes whatever dieting plans! Eat-fat-us!

One of the stores we checked out today got me super excited and I can’t wait to bring the girls! Previously we checked out their outlet at Marina Square and was impressed at the comfort and design of the place, but now this brings the impressiveness to the next level! A dedicated Times Junior section at Times Waterway Point, how cool is that?

Walk right into Times bookstore at Level 2 and you will find this times Junior section, filled with many children books and activities.
Little ones can even browse through the selection while bouncing on these ladybugs. So cute!
For the hands-on folks, there’s also a section for all your gardening, cooking and handy craft shopping needs.
And they also have lots of shelves of educational and learning resources. Somehow the way they display them makes them more friendly and less stress when shopping for these to prep for exams.
Wide selection of products available at Times Waterway Point.
Time to use more of our Times membership card!
Also spotted cute kids clothes and accessories at PRIVI Kids at Level 2.

For parents with little ones, there’s also an indoor playground at Level 2 and its FREE!

The door is cleverly designed and you’ll need to spot the shoe racks before you can spot the door to enter. It’s facing 1010 store if you’re wondering where to enter from.

There’s also a small children corner inside the foodcourt Cookhouse. However there were only chairs in there today, not very attractive for now. Hope they’ll add in more play stuff soon.
